Environmental & Forest Education in the Classroom: Summary of Key Workshop Findings
The long-term well being of our forests is dependent upon engaging and fostering future environmental stewards. However, reaching youth through the school system is becoming increasingly challenging, and many organizations across the province and country have noted barriers in delivering meaningful and sustainable education programs.
In response, Forests Ontario, PLT Canada, and CIF-IFC facilitated a workshop in April, 2019 to discuss the state of environmental and forest education in Ontario, explore the barriers to program delivery, and uncover opportunities to increase participation and impact.
We are pleased now to share a summary report of the workshop and our key findings.
